Dr. Cameron Homeyer recipient of 2016 American Geophysical Union award
Dr. Cameron Homeyor, assistant professor for the school of meteorology, was named recipient of the 2016 American Geophysical Union (AGU) award for refereeing.
Homeyer was selected by two different AGU editors among the many nominations.
“Peer-reviewed literature plays a critical role in advancing science.” says the AGU. “However, peer reviewing has been generally undervalued in terms of its contributions and of the collective level of effort involved.”
AGU says much of their scientific community is through their quality publications through their leading articles.
“Quality peer review in many ways distinguishes leading journals from the growing threat of so-called predatory journals that can degrade scientific integrity,” said AGU “The process of reviewing helps scientists improve their careers and develop better networks. In the case of peer review, the collective whole is much more than the sum of its very important parts.”
Congratulations Dr. Cameron Homeyer!
